Gaining notice for his bullying role opposite Haley Joel Osment in the massively popular 1999 supernatural sleeper hit The Sixth Sense, Trevor Morgan has quickly risen through the ranks to appear in some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters.

Born in Chicago, IL, in November 1986, Morgan found his calling early in life when, at the age of six, he told his parents that he wanted to become an actor. Soon after his family relocated to California in order to pursue his youthful dreams, young Morgan began to win roles in television commercials and in such popular series as Baywatch and Touched By an Angel in 1997. Making his feature debut in Family Man the same year, he began to realize his dreams, taking roles in Barney's Big Adventure and the made-for-television In the Doghouse the year before his role in The Sixth Sense gained him positive notice and widespread recognition. Nominated for Best Performance in TV Movie or Pilot at the Young Artist Awards for his turn as a child genius leading a double life in Disney's Genius the same year, Morgan appeared again alongside Osment in I'll Remember April (1999) before turning up as Mel Gibson's son in The Patriot in 2000. Soon after, Morgan would have his biggest adventure yet, facing off against dinosaurs in Jurassic Park III (2001).
